>tfw you find out the otaku guy you met at some con is a huge slut
>he owns figmas, watches countless anime I've never heard about, reads a bunch of manga, studies Japanese, cosplay
The thing is that he's very good looking, he even worked as a model for a while. When I asked him about past relationships and he told me he never had a real girlfriend I thought he was going to say he was a virgin, but instead of told me all the details of his sexual history. It seriously grossed me out.

>lost his virginity at 12 to a 20yo woman

>> No.7355383

I want to start planning out my next costumes, but for years I've struggled with staying committed to a character or design once I started on it. I get super pumped about a costume, and start ordering materials for it, then the next day I have a completely new thing I'm excited about and want to make. This has obviously cost me some wasted money in fabrics and crafting supplies. I basically can't commit to a specific cosplay, and so I'm currently afraid of starting anything new, for fear I'll change my mind about it tomorrow.

This feel's kind of gross, just a warning.

Ever since I was a little kid (around 4 or 5 years of age) I've picked at my skin constantly. I usually do it at places that aren't gonna be outwardly noticeable to strangers, like my toes, But the place that gets it the worst is my lips. For over 15 years I have not gone more than a week without picking off dry scabs from them.

I've started building a lolita wardrobe and I'm happy with where it's going, but my damned lips hold me back from wearing it in public. In order for them to look OK and not gross and cracked, I have to pick the skin off all over again and wear lipstick or gloss, and the next day my lips will be dry and cracked again. It's a huge vicious cycle and I hate it.

I just want to have pretty lips. They've healed enough in the past where I know they're not scarred or anything once healed, but I can't even get to that point. I desperately want to be fixed of it by mid-Spring, when I'm gonna be modeling at a fashion show... but I know it's probably not going to happen. I'm seeing a psychiatrist in a month about some other issues, so I want to bring it up then... I just don't know.

No, not at all, but if I bend my arms too much, or even just put them down, the insides of my elbows, or under my arms could end up without paint. Since I water it down so much, it rubs off really easily until it's dried.

For reference, I'm doing a bubblehead nurse, so I just need a very light layer of it to make myself pale and sickly looking, rather than the homostuck type solid body paint.

I'm a girl who can't even paint my nails without fucking them up every single time, because I can't sit still long enough for them to dry. So standing in a bathtub until it dries is a pain.

I get really upset with myself because I'm so negative about everything. I always find something to nag about peoples costumes (way above their skill level, shitty wig/make-up, doesn't suit the character at all, sloppily made costume, generally just a bad looking person etc..) and even if they were good cosplayers I'd have a problem with their personality ("I follow this bitch on twitter and I know she only got interested in this series after it got popular! stay away from my babies attentionwhore ugh") and so on. It's gotten to the point where I only have a couple of friends and even then I'm afraid my constant negativity will eventually drive them away too.
I've kind of figured that the reason I judge others so harshly is because I do not look the way I wish I would, aren't skillful enough to make elaborate costumes and generally just lack motivation to do even half of the costumes I actually want to. It doesn't help that I'm embarrassed of this hobby so I don't want to spend all of my money on it. I back out of anything that seems too difficult and never look at it again. I deliberately stop myself from doing costumes that I would look awful in no matter how much I'd love to do them, and I think that's why it pisses me off when other people are able to have fun without thinking about silly things like those and just do what they want.
The worst thing is even when I know all this I still can't stop, and I keep being judgemental of everyone who's not perfect and still hold myself back from doing some of the cosplays I really want because I couldn't even imagine dealing with looking myself in the mirror and thinking "as I thought, I look like shit".
Even when I fit the character I'm cosplaying I keep thinking how much better it'd look if I was this and that and everything but the way I am now and that's honestly just so tiring.

sorry for the stupid rant and being a little bitch

>> No.7356703

I sort of feel this, anon. I've become much more critical mentally and now whenever I go to cons I don't see, "oh, they're cosplaying from that series and they look like they're enjoying themselves", I think, "okay, they probably should have styled the wig, the material on that prop doesn't look right" and I don't know how to stop myself. I never say these things out loud, but I wish I could just... turn this off, sometimes.

And even when it comes to my own cosplays, it's either perfect or bust, I'm never satisfied with it. Even if people tell me I look fine I don't know how to take it, and sometimes I just dismiss it. I say things like, "well I didn't do a good job with this part here" or "yeah but my wig isnt' that great". What do?

>> No.7356720

>I judge others so harshly is because I do not look the way I wish I would, aren't skillful enough to make elaborate costumes and generally just lack motivation to do even half of the costumes I actually want to.
I think this is a very common issue, especially on this board and something I think about before I reply to the one criticizing.
It takes practice once you are in a circular rut of doing this but you need to break out of it so you will feel better.
Is something else going on in your life that makes you feel so judgmental in this area and your hobby, maybe? Sometimes futile quests for perfection in one area of your life point to that.

i do that same thing with compliments. i can tell that it makes it really awkward for the person giving the compliment sometimes, too. it's really hard to just say "hey, thanks" but i have found that following the "thanks" up with compliments on their stuff easily shifts the conversation away from what i am convinced is the shittiest pleated skirt ever (or whatever it is that they pointed out).

there is a problem with people assuming ALL lolita is just fetish clothing, so for advertising
>I wear lolita as fetish clothes!
>please fuck me! I'll wear lolita and be your naughty little girl!

is a thousand steps backward for every girl that has to fight to explain that she dresses in pretty clothes in a non-sexual way.

HOWEVER, you can add on to these things
>I wear lolita as fetish clothes, but the fashion isn't for people that do, its purely for people that enjoy the clothing
YES, this is OK. make your intents clear.

because stating
"fuck me in a lolita dress"
"lolita is fetish clothing for me"

makes people think

Ive been putting off working on a costume for so long and I think i figured out the reason why.

Im not very excited about being this character. Th only reason im doing it is to fill in a group. I was so desperate to have another group cosplay done, where we could all be from the same thing and match, that i completely bypassed whether or not i would actually enjoy being this character. The outfit is entirely casual, but i dumped a decent amount of money on a great jacket for it, which i am now painting with fabric paint to make it work. But when I look at it, i just think "wow, i am totally slaughtering this jacket and i may never wear it again".

Im going to force myself to wear it even outside of cons just so i can feel like my money didnt go to waste. And from now on, im going to give groups a whole lot more thought. I envy the people who can casually say they will cosplay someone to fill in a group and dont seem to be bothered by it at all, because i have found that it makes me feel disgusted with myself when im not excited to be the character. i can easily spend a ton of money of an elaborate costume i will only wear once or twice a year if i love the character. Ive found that it's not worth the effort otherwise.

2. Don't like the only character I can pull off that much but really like the game/show.

Right there with you, anon. You don't see every woman outside of Lolita whose feet are over a UK 6.5 running around in cons and cocktail dresses. If anything, shoes should be the easiest part of the outfit to source, especially considering the recent popularity of the more twee styles.
I only wore cons with Lolita once, and I was literally going out to play catch in a field.

I'll soon have to decide on a study (I had to redo a year so I'm a bit older) and nothing interests me. I've gone through lists and descriptions and all sorts of information on studies but I just can't find anything.
The problem is that I HAVE to make a decision soon and I just can't make one because I have zero ideas of what I want.
It frustrates me because this whole situation made me realize that I have no ambitions or dreams for the future, or any expectations at all really. Everything just feels like a huge blank and it sucks.

tfw you can't make cosplay friends no matter how hard you try.

Is there a secret behind it or something? I've been going to cons for almost 5 years and only have a handful of "friends" that are closer to other cosplayers and tend to forget who I am by the next con. It frustrates me to no end seeing people who just started going to cons less than half a year ago have tons of new friends while I'm still going to cons with my non-cosplayer friends.

I swear in my area you gotta be pulling out cosplays every month and making it your priority in life to make friends (I don't take/share fanervice-y cosplay selfies every day, have a page or a -cosplay name- like 90% of my community does, I just try to live my life with cosplay as a hobby every once in awhile)...

It's probably too much time spent on cgl, but I honestly can't and don't know how to stop and it's ruining cosplay for me.

both my body and face are shit so i don't even know why i bother cosplaying still. my face would be decent but i have a huge nose with a bump on it (imagine typical polish nose) and a buttchin. people tell me i'm cute/pretty all the time but it's really hard for me to believe it because when i see pictures of myself i just compare them to way better looking girls than me and feel like shit about myself, even with tons of makeup

my body would be okay too but it's so.....lumpy, i'm not even fat, i would be a very ideal chubby/curvy pear type which is my favorite body type but i have a flabby stomach, currently my measurements are 34-26-39 but my fat stomach keeps me from doing cosplays which bare the stomach.

i'm not a good seamstress and my machine is pretty much on its last leg and i cant afford a new one, i buy most of my cosplays and they usually fit me wrong and i have no means to alter them

I do less difficult stuff but am cute/in shape, so I get more attention, and she's visibly sour about it and sometimes compliment-complains.

I know EXACTLY the thing you speak of.

All you can do is keep trying. Eventually there will be a normal person in the sea of special snowflakes.
On the bright side the people you are trying to avoid out themselves quickly so you don't waste time getting to know them only to find out about some fake issues they are "dealing with"
Those types always insert their pills, issues, fake story into the first 5 minutes of conversation cause they want you to know how special they are.

Had I been a little more savvy back in the day I wish I would have just got up and left the moment someone thought knowing someone for 5 minutes was the appropriate time to bring up their "meds" and "daddy raped me" stories.
Letting someone know that shit isn't welcomed and cheapens the fact that some people do have things happen to them can nip that inappropriate behavior in the bud.

Buy a soft toothbrush (they come in different hardness: soft med and hard)
Buy some CARMEX (original formula) pic related ($3 USD)

Near the end of your daily shower gently brush your lips with the toothbrush. Use the shower cause it's wet and your skin has had time to soften in there.
As soon as you get to your room put on the carmex.

Play a game with yourself to not bother your lips for 30 mins. Then 1 hr. Then 2 hours
Just do other shit like clean up the room, sew, browse beautiful lolita coords, play a video game.

Reapply a little more Carmex after 1 hr if needed.

Speaking from experience.
First one was when I was on exchange, he cheated, begged me to stay with him, NOPE.

Second was (ex)bf on exchange.
communication slowed, then stopped.
Month later he was dating a new girl.
We even 'broke up' before he left.

The trouble with healthy at every size is people concentrate on the "at every size" part and ignore the "healthy" part. The difference between someone who is overweight and healthy vs. overweight and unhealthy is the choices they make around their lifestyle. So yeah, you can be in the obese BMI range and healthy - but you sure as fuck aren't going to be sitting around stuffing your face with crap and vegetating in front of a TV or computer screen 24/7, you'll be probably meeting or exceeding healthy exercise guidelines and recommendations about healthy eating and nutrition.

I've done both. Been in a 3-year relationship, took a few years off to myself with occasional casual sex, heading back into what will likely be a long-term relationship again. Sometimes you just meet people you're only sexually attracted to but with whom you are not otherwise compatible. Sometimes circumstances would limit things from becoming long-term. The person I'm seeing now has mostly done casual things but I think they've never had someone dedicated to them enough to form a mutual commitment. We don't really care about each others' sexual history as long as we're both clean and tested.

When I was in my first long-term relationship, yeah, I was in the "sex is sacred!!1" bandwagon too, but I've known so many friends who went from one long-term relationship to another and get wistful over missing out on casual fun since they never gave it a shot.

Macronutrients are proteins, fats, and carbs. Someone with a defined dieting/workout plan usually has a bretty guud idea of how much of those they want to eat. I think the math is something like 4 calories/gram for carbs and proteins and 9 calories/gram for fats. You need roughly 1 gram/pound of bodyweight if you want to gain muscle mass, the rest is dependent on your size and shape.

I don't know about that, I've been on /cgl/ since 2008, and it's pretty similar. Fewer thinspo threads, and maybe a tad more politeness towards more normal sized pictures, but I'm a girl who is bordering on under-weight, and has been put on a feeding schedule, but I have large hips and breasts, and the ONLY place I can be shamed for being too big is still /cgl/.

at 5'7" and 110 lbs with 42 inch hips, I should really REALLY gain weight just to protect my joints, but my ribs don't stick out, and my face isn't sunken and skeletal, so I'm pretty much always called fat here.

>> No.7363894

It is somewhat excessive but it's meant to be a kind of catch-all for different body types. Personally I eat about 80% of my bodyweight in grams of protein and it's fine but I'm definitely not as big as I could be. Diet is actually the largest part of gaining muscle though.

Also when I say "per day" I'm being a little strict I guess, the protein intake window after a workout is between 24-36 hours so as long as you get enough protein during that and then eat enough calories to cancel out whatever you burned during the workout, you will gain.

Low carb is fine but honestly I'd recommend avoiding it, it's a hassle. I can't outline you a whole diet but I will say that

>>chicken breast

I'm REALLY sure it is. I have no doubts in my mind that if I slept and ate regularly, I'd have been down to my goal weight years ago. That being said, it's not really a choice, and that sucks.

I really try to eat, and it's been getting a little better, I basically do the BRAT diet on days I don't sleep, and then supplement nutrition by mixing a calorie-high protein powder into milk, and then putting that in my tea. It doesn't taste great, but it's one of the few things I can consume a LOT of and keep down. The three days aren't in a row, for example, I didn't sleep Thursday--> Friday last week, and I didn't sleep last night (Sunday--> Monday) I can get OK sleep in between, and try my best to eat well when I do.

This whole thing is just a huge fucking hassle, and I wish sleep studies could actually help me.

Dude, I live where the sun literally don't shine and the only "vegan" and "organic" thing that can grow in this temperature are shitty berries. I've never SEEN a living chicken in my life and the stuff I eat would be about 70% sauteed reindeer if I were to only eat what was available here. Maybe some berries and rhubarb.
Winter here lasts for a really long time, too. I only eat what my supermarket offers when it comes to greens, so I must've ingested GMO food at least a few times.
In the EU where all of that is strictly regulated, nothing bad will happen. At all. I've never seen a fat person in my life, either, and I can guarantee I could eat more than anyone here. Like someone here said before, if you exercise you can eat whatever as long as it's somewhat diverse.

When I was eating a lot of really sugary junk food, I started to slowly transition over to fruit. The sugar is pretty much the same, (though fruit has less calories and more nutrients) but I found that then it was easier to eat less sugary stuff when most of the sugars I was consuming was fruit.

It was hell, anon. I know that feel. Now I savor the taste of just a banana or a glass of juice.

As far as cutting things out of your diet, try any kind of starch. It's loaded with carbs and leaves you feeling hungry when you eat it. Replace maybe half of your carb intake with protein - ground beef is an easy alternative, that or chicken breasts. Maybe raw salmon if you've got a local asian market.

Not everyone has sugar withdrawal symptoms but I sure do and it sounds like you do too. I have to do just fruit as another anon suggested, then ease back on even that. The key is to stick to it then and not let sugary things creep back in on a regular basis. Just an occasional treat once a month or so.

even assuming that selective breeding of animals and plants doesnt count as genetic manipulation (think milk cows and carrots. They used to come in non-orange colors)

when a GMO is tested to bring in genes that increase resistance to disease or extra nutrients, the mountain of tests and checks they must undergo is huge. The real danger of GMO's is accidental cross-pollination with weeds to create hybrid superweeds that are resistant to diseases and weedkillers.

The kicker however is this: there are a lot of other normal practices in the (vegetable) food industry that would seem opposable for the same reasons, but because they get no media coverage nobody cares.

Hell, food regularly gets xrayed for sterilization, and its harmless, but you rarely hear people going ">eating irradiated food enjoy your tumor" even though its the same idiot brand of logic.
